Holistic Organic Veganism for Life, the Future, and You Message Board › Why Organic Scientific Holistic Veganism is set to become much more important
|Michael A. B.||
Hi Organic Scientific Holistic Veganism Members,
Two updates right now--
1) This group is about to become more important.
Veganism will be badly needing a voice that can speak in tune with the science that shows the low cholesterol/low-saturated fat theory, known as the heart-health hypothesis was a myth to popularize statin medications.
"What is that?" you ask.
As background, vegan nutritionists have, unfortunately, often saddled onto the low-fat heart-health fiction in a well-intentioned attempt to portray veganism as a healthy option. After all, veganism is naturally going to be good for your cardiovascular health. But the perch on which veganism had stood itself up as an attractive diet on the basis of its being a low-fat lifestyle is about to crumble, as broad swaths of scientists and cardiologists acknowledge that cholesterol-monitoring and that whole game was just a tool to sell statin drugs. There are countless scientists and experts speaking out now on proof that there is no link between cholesterol, saturated fat, and heart disease or health. In fact, too low cholesterol causes many health problems.
Do you see the predicament that veganism can be in, if it doesn't start modernizing its message, which is to say, base it on health science rather than half-century old popular beliefs?
Although a slightly strong metaphor, veganism's "deal with the devil" (association with the low-cholesterol, low-fat pharmaceutical lie) may come back to haunt it. It's going to be a rough period for the growth of veganism, unless there is an informed core of vegan educators who recognize myths vs. reality.
Fortunately - and this is critical - the benefits of veganism were never about the low-fat. There are so many other benefits of mineral-rich, high-enzyme plant-sourced only living, from phytonutrients to alkalinity to good raw fats and more, that we don't need to stay at all with any argument stemming from the discredited diet-heart hypothesis.
Indeed, it is healthy for vegans to get good fats, from avocados and nuts and seeds and coconuts and various fat-containing vegetables and fruits. The mythological vegan diet of high cooked processed grains and processed oils will continue to decline, and rightfully so.
Our group of Organic Scientific Vegans will be helping unlatch veganism from any shard of falsehoods from the diet-heart hypothesis, exercising excellent ways to get true holistic nutrition, in light of both modern and ancient knowledge, from a 100% plant-sourced diet.
2) We have just launched a meetup event, a spiritual evening with Dr. Gabriel Cousens. In addition to scientifically strengthening our knowledge about holistic veganism, it is equally important, if we're being holistic, to strengthen and empower our spirituality, especially as vegan organic leaders and enthusiasts.
